MID Official Sez Russia Will Veto Any Military Intervention in Syria Raised at the UN

Russia and China say… “NO WAR IN SYRIA”. That’s the end of it…


Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said that Russia wouldn’t agree to any resolution by the UN Security Council that could eventually authorise military intervention in the country. On Thursday, he wrote in his Twitter microblog, “We continue complex consultations in New York on a ‘Syrian’ resolution with the aim of reaching a text addressing the demands of both parties equally. We won’t agree with any UN Security Council resolution on Syria containing clauses that could authorise the use of force against the country. Ambiguity is unacceptable”. Russia, together with China, used its veto in the UN Security Council to block a resolution that could potentially result in military intervention in Syria, repeating the so-called “Libyan scenario”.
